Overview

About the property

Beautiful modern home, big views, private hot tub!

Please note, there is a home being built next to this home. Construction has currently been halted while a new contractor is hired. We do not know when construction will begin again so please be aware that the possibility exists that there will be construction nearby this summer.

Larger than life views of Lone Peak and Andesite Mountain make this majestic home an inspired backdrop any time of year for your Big Sky adventures. Situated near the Moonlight entrance in private wooded surroundings, this elegant, ski-accessible chalet affords ample opportunities for wildlife viewing. Convenience, luxury, and natural beauty reign supreme here. An ideal fit for large (or multiple) families, groups of friends/colleagues, or up to 4 vacationing couples, this 4,000 sq. foot custom lodge offers an abundance of immaculate, profesionally-decorated space to gather, or spread out, in style. Upgraded with luxurious finishes throughout, no detail has been overlooked at Swift Bear. Featuring an open floor plan, vaulted ceilings, a gourmet kitchen, rich draperies, and new furniture, this fashionable abode lets you live the VIP life at elevation. The great room's floor to ceiling windows frame the mountain expanse like a precious piece of art. The outdoor fireplace and hottub on the breathtaking front deck provide the perefct haven for stargazing or taking in a picturesque sunset. Rest easy knowing that this home is environmentally and green energy conscious with a Geothermal HVAC and LEED Platinum Five Star Plus rating, leaving a significantly lower carbon footprint than the standard rental. Splendidly secluded but still close enough to all the action, and only 45 scenic miles from West Yellowstone, this amazing alpine retreat has all the comforts of home in a mountain paradise!

Ski Rating 3:

Best for intermediate and expert skiers. The ski in and out are very long and utilize several groomed real estate trails and real estate access lifts. Poling and skating will be necessary. Ski accessible, but not true ski-in/out.

Ski Out:

Follow the groomed trail by the house and go through the tunnel to the White Otter chair lift. Ride White Otter to the top and cross White Wing to follow signage to the Big Sky Base area.

Ski In:

Follow White Otter Access to the rope tow for the Cascade. Take the Cascade Lift to the top and climb the stairs to a groomed trail that will take you back to Swift Bear Chalet.

Swift Bear Chalet is part of our Platinum Collection.

Just gorgeous!

  • 5 of 5

Our party of 6, 4 adults and 2 teenagers enjoyed a wonderful week at Swift Bear Chalet. It is beautifully decorated, the kitchen and laundry are well stocked with cleaning products, store cupboard essentials and crockery. The bedrooms and bathrooms are top end quality and the views are stunning. We all wished we had longer to enjoy both the house and the surrounding area - wonderful.

Couldn't have been better!

  • 5 of 5

We've rented a lot of homes over the years, and Swift Bear Chalet tops them all as a composite of comfort, amenities, location, and staff support. The house is perfect for our group of 7, though it can sleep more without difficulty. Being that it's a mile from the entrance to Big Sky Resort, you're 5 minutes from the action but feel quite secluded. The kitchen is wonderfully stocked with spices, condiments, oils, flour, etc, so grocery purchases can be limited to main ingredients, a very nice touch. New flat screen TVs with Dish in every bedroom, a fabulous whole-house sound system, nice big (and clean!) hot tub, fireplaces inside and out - it's just beautifully put together. Lastly, the staff at the rental agency are extremely accommodating and helpful. We really couldn't ask for more, and I know we'll stay here again.

Owner's Response: "Wow! We couldn't be more pleased with your guest review as a reflection of your stay and experience there! Because we as a family were intensely involved in and intimate with the outcomes of the house's qualities and features which you mention, we the homeowners do take great pride and satisfaction in knowing, as you have so kindly and generously pointed out, how much our guests appreciate and value their time there, just as we do when we're there. However, as you also suggest, these things we appreciate most about the house and its environs are intrinsically and fundamentally also attached to Everyone that helped us make our vision of our dream home, escape, and rental property a reality. As you commented and experienced first-hand, we, too, truly believe that we have entrusted this "baby" of ours in the best hands, care, and support system out there--Big Sky Vacation Rentals and Headwaters Hot Tub of which you allude. We wouldn't have it any other way! We do hope you can make it back for another visit and stay in our home! Thank you for your highly complimentary review." Thank You, Brian, Linda, and Harry

family of four, outdoor adventure athletes

  • 5 of 5

We were very happy with everything about this home. The home is beautifully decorated, intelligently outfitted with high end sound system, heating, appliances, furniture, ect. The location has a wonderful view of the mountain and is conveniently located close to moonlight basin and big sky. The ski out is easy with a little direction, however the ski in is do able but requires more effort to find the house. We stayed here for a ski vacation with our two teen age sons and actually enjoyed cooking in, and all the amenities of the home. The house was completely outfitted with everything and there was backup of all neccesities. No expense spared. Very happy renting this home and the management company was very easy and accomodating.

Family vacation in Big Sky

  • 5 of 5

My family and several of my son's friends stayed at the Swiss Bear Chalet 12-27 thru 1-4-14. There were 11 of us total and we could not have picked a better place to spend our vacation. The home was warm, cozy, offered spectacular views and well stocked with all we needed for our group. Our group consisted of skiers and snowboarders and we were all able to ski in and out during our stay. However we took full advantage of the free shuttle that was provided to us and was promptly picked up and returned at the end of the day. The home was BEAUTIFUL with not a detail overlooked. The location was quiet and just a 5 minute car ride to Moonlight or Big Sky. At one point my sister-in-law said, " I feel like I live here!" Our group enjoyed downhill and cross country skiing. We cross countried at Lone Mountain Ranch which was superb. We also spent a day snow shoeing at the Ranch. The dinners and lunches at the Ranch are the best! Our other favorite is Buck's T4. Can't be beat! Thank you to the owners of this beautiful property for sharing it with our family.
